Tree frog heaven!

catherinet(5 IN)June 12, 2011

My son is a budding sound engineer, and I've been after him for a long time to record the tree frogs outside my window at night. Finally, last night he did. I'll try to figure out if I can post it here. But.....outside another of my bedroom windows is a 300 gallon Rubbermaid stocktank, and there were 8....count 'em ***8*** tree frogs sitting on lily pads there.

I was in heaven!!

Come and get the pair of tree frogs in my little water feature - they drive me CRAZY with their croaking!!!! We have lots of them in our area, but I wish they didn't live in MY YARD!

Just wondering ... why do you not want the tree frogs in your yard? Is it the croaking keeping you awake or do they do something else to your plants that you don't like?

We have a lot of croaking in the spring when all the toads are doing the hanky panky in our backyard pool, but the eggs don't last because of the chemicals and the toads don't hang around. Some mornings in the spring, the surface of the pool looks like a science fiction movie set.

We love the croaking and are hoping to entice some to stay by building them their own little Motel 6 in the front yard.

I have to admit that the tree frogs don't just croak, like a green frog or a bull frog. They sort of scream. I can't stand human noises and they will keep me awake........but even tree frog screaming is like a lullaby to me.
Send me your frogs kayjones! :)

We love the sound of treefrogs, they lull us to sleep but the neighbor's dog wakes me with one bark...
